Bryza: Shelling of cemetery in Azerbaijan’s Tartar – another Armenian provocation
The shelling of a cemetery in Azerbaijan’s Tartar district by the Armenian armed forces is yet another provocation by Yerevan, Matthew Bryza, former U.S. ambassador to Azerbaijan and former OSCE Minsk Group co-chair, told News.Az.
He was commenting on Armenia’s shelling of a cemetery in Azerbaijan’s Tartar district during a funeral procession on Thursday, which left 3 people dead and 3 others injured.
“I express my sympathy to those who came under fire while burying their loved ones. I’m deeply saddened by the news about Armenia’s shelling of a cemetery,” the former diplomat said.
Bryza said Armenian Prime Minister Pashinyan is facing a defeat in the political arena.
“Having suffered a defeat in the political arena, Pashinyan had to return to the Madrid principles. Now he is in a difficult situation and is provoking Azerbaijan to violate these agreed principles,” he added.
